Sponsored by AIG Asia Pacific, one of Singapore’s leading General Insurance companies, and supported by the Traffic Police and the Singapore Road Safety Council, the AIG DriveSafe Challenge is aimed at promoting good driving habits and road safety in Singapore.

During the challenge, participants will drive to six locations across the island, where they will test their road driving skills and road safety knowledge. At each station, participants will be educated on various elements of road safety – from tyre maintenance and drinking responsibly to the dangers of using mobile phones when driving – and complete related tasks. A total of $6,000 in cash and prizes can be won by participants. Guest of Honour Dr Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, Parliamentary Secretary for Ministry of Transport and MP for Nee Soon GRC will flag-off the event.

Take the Challenge

To take part in the AIG DriveSafe Challenge or learn more about the event, you can register at www.AIG.com.sg/AIGDriveSafeChallenge. While on the site, please ‘like’ the event’s facebook page ‘AIG DriveSafe Challenge’ where updates will be posted.

To drive home the importance of road safety, participants will be scored on how accurate and efficient they complete each task without breaking traffic rules.

Registration is $100 per car with a maximum of four participants per car and a minimum of three participants. AIG will donate all registration fees to the Singapore Road Safety Council in support of its ongoing efforts to improve safety on the roads.

Mike Raines, President and CEO of AIG said, “As one of Singapore’s largest general insurers, we launched the DriveSafe Challenge to remind people to drive safely on the roads and to help break bad driving habits. Last year, there were 327,503 cases of road safety violations in Singapore – 3.6% more than in 2011. These are accidents waiting to happen.

Bernard Tay, Chairman of the Singapore Road Safety Council said: “Drivers need to be attentive on the road as their actions can pose a danger to other drivers, motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians. We would like to thank AIG for its efforts in joining this call to action to observe good safety habits on the road. AIG’s donation will go a long way towards helping us with our ongoing efforts to make our roads safer for everyone.”

The Challenge will start and end at The Grandstand at Turf Club Road – the venue sponsor for this Challenge. Other sponsors include Toyota, BKW car rental, eBao, Spark Car Care (Comfort DelGro), Toppan Printing and Power 98FM.
